Reasons Why You Should Change Your Cabin Air Filter

When's the last time you had your cabin air filter changed? If you have to ponder on this question for too long, the answer is probably too long. The cabin air filter does more than keep dirt and dust out of the air you breathe. They block out harmful bacteria and other irritants, like pollen. With spring finally, here you should consider changing your cabin air filter.

Here's why:


You shouldn't forget that your car emits harmful exhaust every time you drive. Once these gases get released, they can make their way back into the cabin's circulation system. It can be harmful to you and your passengers to inhale this.


When your air filter is clogged, it can make your HVAC system work way harder than it needs to. As a result, it can decrease your fuel efficiency. 


If you're sensitive to allergies in the spring, you have to be more careful of when to change this filter. Otherwise, you may find yourself suffering from constant sneezing and itchy, watery eyes. Replacing the filter will help prevent these allergens from getting inside your car.


When you neglect your cabin filter for too long, dust builds upon it and can cause your vehicle to develop an odor. So if you want your car to smell clean, please have this changed on time.
